    I have an acdc pro that I love playing, except it is a constant down the middle drain. I've adjusted wire, added a bigger bumper on post, added more elevation to table, but still sometimes get 4 or 5 bells in a row right down the middle, never get to hit em. Any ideas on a deflector or, ,

    Yep...it's a well known issue. One way I resolved it SOME was to adjust it right side slightly higher than left side so it more often bounces off the rubber post. It happened so often I didn't even like shooting the orbit...same with the canon.

    Tried that. Then it drains in left outpost every time.

    I've been thinking of a small , soft diverter of some sort, either at the exit, or in front of flippers.

    Start nudging upon exit if it looks like it will not be redirected by the post. Nudge the post into the ball as it passes.

    Have. Loosened tilt. Just pisses me off cuz it's a fun game otherwise. Design flaw

    Practice makes perfect. You’ll get it.

    I have mine at 7.1 deg. First 50 games no issues, then started getting center drains. I bent the wire up towards the bell; at first this caused balls to get stuck on the wire, then I gave it a very slight bend back away from the bell and found a great medium. I do get SDTM from it but it is very rare. It’s not supposed to be a 100% safe shot as it’s the most lucrative shot in the game for scoring (multipliers) - It should be a rather random-like return, but agreed that it shouldn’t be SDTM.

    Maybe try cleaning the pf; speed up the game and the returns?

    Have done all that. I put a drink coaster pad on and it helps a lot. No flyers off it yet. Also did a bobble head demon for fun

    I caught this forever and just removed the wire never had an issue again I do have the ball pendilum mod would perhaps the wire removed with that was the magic

    I forgot, the other thing I did was replace the rubber that is on that post with a full rubber sleeve so that it sticks out a bit more.

    Ya I know. Felt looks tacky, but it helps play for now

    #14 9 months ago

    Yea just remove the spring ,the spring kills the flow and doesnt really help with sdtm drains, add a few rubbers to help deflect the ball and hang on its a fast muther

    Quoted from coz6:

    Agreed, I did the same on mine and no sdtm issues anymore. One more benefit of removing the spring is that then it doesnt scratch the playfield. My pro had pretty severe scratches after years on route
